The Arch­bishop of York, John Sen­tamu, met with the Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis at Durham Univer­sity on 19 Fe­bru­ary for this first time to dis­cuss in­ter­faith re­la­tions in the 21st century with univer­sity stu­dents. This pro­gramme marked the be­gin­nings of a stu­dent-led in­ter­faith com­mu­nity called the CCJ Stu­dent Pres­i­dents. This group will work with other groups to give stu­dents from vary­ing faiths the chance to in­ter­act with one an­other in an ef­fort to pro­mote tol­er­ance and re­li­gious in­tel­li­gence. The dis­cus­sion be­gan with the sub­ject of in­ter­faith di­a­logue. Both the arch­bishop and the rabbi em­pha­sized the im­por­tance of open com­mu­ni­ca­tion stat­ing how much each faith can learn from one an­other and how nec­es­sary it is to work to­gether as op­posed to work­ing against each other.
